Do You Know that you can search just the Obituaries on the site by using the three County Specific Obituary selections in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page? You can narrow your search by including a key word in the cemetery name or a township name in addition to the surname you search. Then select the Find All Words option. 


You'll also find obituary and other newspaper clippings using Clippings partition. Additional clippings can be found in the Birth, Marriage, and some other partitions. 

Reading a series of obituaries from a single cemetery, as they are presented here, is like reading the multi-generational history of a community. These people were the local populace at a particular time. The people buried here knew each other, were neighbors, relatives and school mates. They attended church together and engaged in "trade" or business.  All people are listed in alphabetic order by surname at BIRTH. Women identified by a married alias only and  for whom a birth surname can not be identified, are listed on the last page for the cemetery's obituaries.

 

SRGP ID Added in parentheses by Joyce M .Tice if included in her Sullivan-Rutland Genealogy Project. If you are researching or descended from any of those so designated, it is requested that you share your research with Joycs's SRGP if you have not already done so. That is the price I ask for making this site available. It is your opportunity to share in the cost of creating this site and reward Joyce just a tad for making this enormous body of resource available to you. It is a way to pay your dues in a small way for use of this site. Please reference the SRGP ID and the page you found this on the site, when you write to me. For women listed under a married alias, I have provided her real name, if I know it.

MITCHELL Lovina - At Mitchell Creek, Tioga, Pa., November 19th, 1861, Lovina Inscho, wife of John Inscho, Esq., aged 66 years. The deceased was the only surviving daughter of Richard Mitchell, one of the early settlers of this valley, who nearly sixty years ago came in this county and undertook the hardships of pioneer life. She had but one sister, who died while quite young. She had four brothers, three of whom are yet living. Her father and mother were long since gone to the "spirit world." she was a woman of excellent judgment, and very reasonable qualities in the times in which she lived. With a retentive and --- memory, she was well supplied with interesting incidents in the early history of this county, to many of which I have often listened with much satisfaction while she was relating them with great accuracy. The experience of a long and industrious life gave her much correct knowledge, and that wisdom for which we should all have a high respect. But I cannot say what I would in the space, proper to be used. She is gone, and rests with her kindred. She was a lifelong, faithful member of the Baptist Church, and is undoubtedly receiving the rewards of Christian fortitude and sacrifices. - Wellsboro Agitator, January 8, 1862 p4
